FINDING A FRACTIONAL
PART OF A QUANTITY IS :
1)
FIRST FIND ¼ OF

WHAT IS 92% OF 50?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 50 ML OF
MEDICATION OF WHICH 92% IS SALINE.
HOW MUCH SALINE SOLUTION IS IN THE SYRINGE?
AS DETERMINED BY THE
TECHNO-SAVY STUDENT.
Percent x Whole = Portion; so
0.92 x 50 = Portion (saline solution)
and
0.92 x 50 = 46 ml of saline solution.

WHAT IS 92% OF 50?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 50 ML OF
MEDICATION OF WHICH 92% IS SALINE.
HOW MUCH SALINE SOLUTION IS IN THE SYRINGE?
AS DETERMINED BY THE LOGICAL
VISUALISTS.
The left side is divided in
100 sections; so divide the
right side into 100 sections
or 0.50 each, consider 92
sections, totaling 0.50 x 92
equals 46 ml of saline
solution.

48 IS WHAT % OF 60?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 60 ML OF
MEDICATION OF WHICH 48 ML IS SALINE.
WHAT PERCENT OF THE SYRINGE IS THE SALINE
SOLUTION?
AS DETERMINED BY THE
TECHNO-SAVY STUDENT.
Percent x Whole = Portion; so
Percent = Portion ÷ Whole
Percent = 48 ÷ 60 = 0.80 = 80%.

48 IS WHAT % OF 60?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 60 ML OF
MEDICATION OF WHICH 48 ML IS SALINE.
WHAT % OF THE SYRINGE IS SALINE SOLUTION?
AS DETERMINED BY

If N represents the
percentage of saline
solution, then

48 IS WHAT % OF 60?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 60 ML OF
MEDICATION OF WHICH 48 ML IS SALINE.
WHAT % OF THE SYRINGE IS
SALINE SOLUTION?
AS DETERMINED
BY THE LOGICAL
VISUALISTS.
The right side is divided in
60 sections; so divide the
left side into 60 sections of
5/3 each, consider 48
sections, totaling 48 x 5/3
or 80% saline solution.
BSI Workshop:
Mathematics
96% OF WHAT QUANTITY IS 60?
A SYRINGE CONTAINS 60 ML OF SALINE
SOLUTION WHICH REPRESENTS 96%
OF THE MEDICATION.
HOW MUCH TOTAL MEDICATION WAS CONTAINED
IN THE SYRINGE?
AS DETERMINED BY THE
TECHNO-SAVY STUDENT.
Percent x Whole = Portion; so
0.96 x Whole = 60, and
Whole Amount = 60 ÷ 0.96
= 62.5 ml of medication.

The left side is divided in
96 sections; so divide the
right side into 96 sections
of 60/96 = 5/8 each. Now
consider 100 such sections
100 x 5/8 or 62.5 ml of

"Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!“ Who are we?
We first see the famous phrase in the Canon in
"The Adventure of the Abbey Grange" when
Holmes tells Watson: "Come, Watson, come! The
game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and
come!" The word "game" has two meanings. One is
"quarry" or "spoils," and it would be the main
meaning in Shakespeare's and Holmes' words.
However, the other meaning of "game" is, "a
diversion, pastime, or amusement; or a form of
mental or physical competitive play, governed by
specific rules and testing the skill, endurance, or
luck of the participants."
